The Richmond Reclamation Project is an interactive oral history highlighting memories of African American residents in Richmond, Virginia, from before the Civil Rights Movement.

The Richmond Reclamation Project is currently in pre-production. Previous grants have provided essential structure for our unique multi-platform approach. Our collective of writers, editors, filmmakers, programmers and researchers is engaged in developing the unconsidered histories and expanded accounts of citizens who witnessed Richmond's historic changes.

We seek further funding to ensure a full realization of the project.

If you have a story to share, we want to hear from you. And we thank you for your support.
